5 stars definitely. I was very suprised by the quality of the food. Very nice indeed. I would definitely recommend this place not only for Aussies, but for everybody. I was very impressed with the "no worries" comment after ordering. Little lil Flinders lane away from home.

Bom (owner) greeted us upon entering the bar. He was very welcoming. He actually greeted everyone who came into the bar. Him and his staff speak English and have English menus. I am not even a fan of heavy metal music but the music is low enough that you can have a conversation. Bar was packed and there were people... More

Really fancy place in Hiroshima. Me and my friend come here at late night, and they still serve food. This place is similar to a '80 pub. Really cool. Food was good. And prices in the average.

Walk in from the street and left over some indoor pool of water. It's on the second of third floor up some stairs. A friend researched this bar looking for an "alternative scene". The theme is pretty grunge and the music isn't too loud so it's easier to talk to whoever you're with. The owner was very nice to us... More

Mitsuyuki "Bom" Tsuyoshi is the coolest bartender in this city, and the cozy, intimate and über cool bar is testament to that. You will need the help of Google Maps to find it, its quite hard to miss if not for the sign outside. Head up the the narrow staircase to the top floors and be warmly welcomed by the... More

We found it difficult to find somewhere in Hiroshima just to have a couple of relaxed drinks after dinner but then stumbled upon Koba. Although they do also serve food, they are happy for you just to sit and enjoy a drink. Drinks are reasonably priced and the rock-loving owner, Bom, makes a real effort to chat to everyone, find...
